AMD revealed in a conference their plans for the 20nm planar process technology as well as their 14nm FinFET chips. They told the press that they would tape out their first products on these 2 processes in the next couple of quarters.
“We are typically at the leading edge across the technology nodes. We are fully top-top-bottom in 28nm now across all of our products, and we are transitioning to both 20nm and to FinFETs over the next couple of quarters in terms of designs. So we will continue to do that across our foundry partners. […] We will do 20nm first and then we will go to FinFETs,” Xbitlabs
Lisa Su, senior vice president and general manager of global business units at AMD, during the conference with financial analysts.
The 20nm planar process technology from TSMC will be able in February next year, AMD will probably tape our their first 20nm based chips in the first half of 2014. This nm process will be featured in AMD's next series graphics cards known as the Pirate Islands series.
The 14nm-XM FinFET process will be made in 1H 2014 by GlobalFoundries and would be featured inside AMD's low power consumption products used in Mobile, Tablets and AIOs. Both processes (20nm and 14nm) are expacted to launch by late 2014 or early 2015.
The new kaveri APU chips with steamroller cores on the FM2+ platform will feature AMDs first 28nm process and these will be able on the end of this year or in January.
On the other hand, also Nvidia seems to enter a new area and will probably feature the 20nm process with Maxwell that is supposed to launch during the end of 1H 2014. Intel however, is still ahead and is going to put its 14nm Broadwell chips on the market by the end of this year.
